Get 'em, Jim DeMint
Every now and then, you find a politician that is worthy of full support. From his common sense approach to taxes via the Fair Tax to his recent statements about failed Presidential candidate John McCain, Jim DeMint proves he is one of those politicians.
The Fair Tax that DeMint supported when he ran for his seat in 2004 was laughed at by liberals. They laughed because it went against things that those liberals stood for and groups that they gave a free pass to. The consumption tax would make illegals pay their fair share, and also give American businesses a fighting chance against global competition. The only losers would be the illegals who avoid paying for government services and the highly paid lobbyists who work sweetheart deals for their clients. Liberals laughed because DeMint stood with the people.
DeMint stood with the people again recently in Myrtle Beach, when he spoke truth about the defects of former Republican Presidential nominee John McCain. According to CNN, Senator DeMint remarked:
"McCain, who is proponent of campaign finance reform that weakened party organizations and basically put George Soros in the driver's seat," DeMint said. "His proposal for amnesty for illegals. His support of global warming, cap-and-trade programs that will put another burden on our economy. And of course, his embrace of the bailout right before the election was probably the nail in our coffin this last election. And he has been an opponent of drilling in ANWR, at a time when energy is so important. It really didn't fit the label, but he was our package."
Amen, Senator DeMint, amen. You seem to be the last of the true common sense conservative Republicans left in Washington. Thank the Good Lord you arefrom South Carolina. Mark Sanford can't be nuts enough to run against such a man. Let's hope the rumors that Sanford is going to challenge you are just high hopes from Sanford supporters. Go get 'em Jim DeMint. Thank you for the good job you are doing in Washington.
